Description
We are open every day of the year providing a warm and inviting space to relax, enjoy some quality food and an adult beverage. As one of Esquire Magazine's Best Bars in America we strive to live up to that high praise. Expansive selection of Scotch and Whiskey. Join us on the 17th of every month for "St. Practice" day so you can warm up for Washington's biggest St. Patrick's Day celebration on March 17. If Futbol/Football/Soccer is your thing then you found your bar. ESPN/710am's Best Soccer Bar in Western Washington. We make every effort to show every game live. We also offer up the American Football with the NFL Sunday Ticket. Need a space for a birthday, fond farewell, bachelor/bachelorette or fantasy draft party? We have one that will seat 20 and it may be reserved without a room charge which means more money for the good stuff.
